How are router/adapter cards changed for security settings?

Installed a Linksys Wireless-N router and so far it's working well with both wireless-N and wireless-G cards but I want to change the security settings from the default to the more secure PSK2.

I am assuming I can go into the administration panel for the router but how do I set the cards on each of three laptops to be able to connect?

Anyone ever done this after all was installed and what steps did you follow?

Thanks

Once you make the security changes to the router via the browser administration screens, you can make the appropriate changes to the receiving computer using the card's client software or the XP SP2 one, depending on whihc one you're using. Normally, if you make the security changes the card will recognize it cannot make the connection anymore and ask you for the WEP/WPA key, especially if the SSID is being broadcast.
